What's round on both ends and high in the middle?

I am boarding the USS Lamberson this afternoon with a course plotted for Loudenville Ohio and round 2 of the NUE Series - the Mohican 100. Bob and Anet Lamberson have so graciously offered me passage in their RV at a price I'd be a fool to pass up. Plus riding 8 hours with friends is a whole lot better than driving alone.

This will be the third 100 miler in as many weeks for me and I am feeling the cumlative effects of the past two weeks. On one of my weekly road rides last night, my legs were kinda tired still but I did feel better towards the end of the ride. I have literally been living out of a bag for the last three weekends and as far as the bike goes, I have done nothing to it except wash the dirt off and lube the chain.

I am going to do something totally different this weekend. Since NUE series points are no longer something I am gunning for, I am totally stress free and not worried about anything. I am going to go without the pressure I normally put on myself and just ride as fast as I can. I am not even going to take any food. I am taking a bike, riding clothes and two empty water bottles. I will live totally off of local fare for the weekend.

This should be interesting.
